We are looking for 6 partners from 6 different countries, who want to take part in a youth exchange that will take place in San Marco d’Alunzio, a small village close to Messina, around the middle of June 2018 (approximately from the 11 to the 17th of June).
Participants: 4 participants per country (24 participants + 1 Group leader per country). The participants must be young people between 18 and 25 years old, including also young people /migrants with fewer opportunities with a medium level of English, if possible.
About San Marco d’Alunzio: The project is to carry out a youth exchange in a little town in the province of Messina, San Marco D’Alunzio, a town full of history, art and culture; There is an ancient village overlooking the sea and the Aeolian Islands. It developed in the fourth century B.C. under the Greek Domination, known since is fundation as the city of Alontion. There are twenty-two churches in the historical centre and other sites of cultural interest. http://www.visitsicily.info/san-marco-dalunzio/
About the project: Our goal is to create a synergy between the participants and the young and old inhabitant of the town, creating a mix of cultures to understand the different ways of life. In particular, the activities will connect the ancient works to the new generations. They will get to know the old techniques and how they have evolved in relation to the historical changes and to new guidelines of the European Union. During this project, the participant will acquire different competences. Through workshops, non-formal activities and local meetings connected to the ancient works, participants will be given the chance to develop a common knowledge of aspects related to social topics such as cultural dialog, diversity acknowledgment, integration, interreligious dialog, gender equality and social awareness. As a result of the project, the participants will recreate a connection between past and present, understanding the changes, the difficulties and the improvements that still need to be supported.
